Democracy Now! Examines Conflict

RSS

“I teach Alternative Dispute Resolution courses and as part of the curriculum on the framing of conflict and of narratives about conflict. I have the students examine news stories from several sources, including DN!, in order to see who/what is framed as the source of a conflict and how that differs depending on the media source. This challenges the concept of objectivity and neutrality; as well as building some media literacy and critical thinking.”
–Leah Wing, Ed.D., Legal Studies Department, University of Massachussetts at Amherst
